INDIANOLA, Iowa - Britney Boland had 12 points and nine rebounds to lead a balanced attack for the Simpson women's basketball team, and the Storm remained perfect at home with an 80-53 win over Dubuque on Saturday.

Simpson outscored Dubuque 21-12 in the second quarter to pull away for the win, its third in a row. 

Allison Biermeier came off the bench to score 11 points for the Spartans (5-10, 0-4 Iowa Conference), who lost their fourth game in a row to start league play.
